Edina, defense, senior
Catalyst for Edina team that lost only one regular-season game. Breathtaking skater who controls the game's tempo. Provided 11 goals and 18 assists while consistently shutting down top forwards. Committed to Wisconsin.
Blaine, defense, senior
Repeat first-team selection showed great offensive prowess (14 goals, 27 assists) and fueled Blaine's state tournament run. Equally adept at getting the less-glamorous work done in front of her own net. Committed to Minnesota.
Maple Grove, goaltender, senior
Never rattled and instills confidence in her teammates. Went 13-2 for the Crimson with a 1.12 goals-against average. Great puck control. Stopped 94 percent of shots faced and posted four shutouts. Committed to Union.
Edina, forward, junior
Powerhouse player who stands out among the Hornets' five forwards bound for Division I. Potent blend of strength, speed and skill, with a drive to make plays. Scored 23 goals and added 15 assists. Committed to Minnesota.
Maple Grove, forward, senior
A player as dynamic as she is complete. Excels at hockey's nuances. A leader who made teammates better and earned their respect. Finished with 26 goals and 27 assists. Committed to Minnesota.
Breck, forward, senior
Star Tribune Metro Player of the Year. Booming slapshot clocked upward of 80 miles per hour. Tallied hat tricks in nine games, then often asked coaches afterward how she could improve. Led the Mustangs with 42 goals and added 16 assists. Won a gold medal with Oden, Wente and seven other Minnesota high school players with Team USA at the Under-18 women's world championship in January. Committed to Minnesota.
